In my several lengthy stints going through Final Fantasy XIV, I noted with wry amusement that there seemed to be a segment of that MMO’s community that was gradually going broke due to buying Phials of Fantasia — items that allowed you to change your character’s race. I kind of understand this, as I changed my own character’s race no less than three times due to the “grass is always greener” syndrome.
Of course, FFXIV isn’t the only MMO that allows for a paid or free race change, and I’m betting that there are quite a few of us that morphed our character into a completely different species to shake things up or fit that toon’s personality better.
Have you ever changed your character’s race? If so, how often do you pull the trigger on such an action?
